Resources & staying healthy

The most useful thing we can all do to help prevent the spread of this virus is to follow basic health precautions. This includes washing your hands often and using a tissue when you cough or sneeze. 

What you can do

If you have arrived in Australia from overseas after 9pm Sun 15/3/20 or if you have arrived in WA from another State 1.30pm on Tue 23/3/20, you must self-isolate for 14 days, stay at home and let your coordinator know.  

If you are unwell or have flu like symptoms, please also let your coordinator or support worker know before commencing services.  

If you have any questions please contact your Support Worker or Coordinator.
